Long time  ago when I  was young

We had  great songs  that could  be sung

About  our nation and our lives

And thousands  over time  survives.

These words of courage  carry on

With  impact of the clarion

They sing of life and  love and care

Of hope and joy,  grief and despair.

Let’s lend  our  voice to all we feel

Because  our  sentiment  is real

Like all  the  verses we have heard

Repeat  to us  God’s  promised word !

A  little  bird there on the  wing

His pretty song did choose to sing

The notes did  travel on  the air

To lend the  hour a special  flair,

Oh  how I  wish  that  I could  be

So like  that bird,  joyous and free !

Days come and  go,  life is  that way

We  live  in hope,  then  fade away

The days  are long  but time  is short

While in  life’s  web, we are all caught.

The chances  are we’re  not done yet

There is  much more that  we can get

Let’s fill our  hearts,  fulfill our dreams

And love our  God  just reams and reams !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE BIG BLAST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/17

Though  I  am old,  I can recall

Those golden days  when  I was small

When  I was but a growing  tyke

With stuff  I liked or did  not like.

I  was not tall  nor  ego prone

Far  long  ere my ideas were  sown

I liked  to play quite by  myself

With  my  stuffed friends  upon the shelf.

Most lives  were so much  simpler then

We wrote  with  ink and  nib and pen

There  were few ways  we got about

While  horse and wagon  still stand  out.

We  learned to  treasure  moments past

Dear  God,  those years were one  big  blast !

 

 

ONE PROMISE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/16

Oh  dearest Lord,  what shall I do

My stay on earth too soon is  through

I  leave my  love  and heart behind

For family  and  friends  to find.

But if  I’m gone and no one’s  there

Who will  be  left to truly  care,

I  pray  that you remember me

With  kindness  and simplicity.

My  closing  thought regarding  this

To seal my word  with one  last  kiss

I  charge  you now  for all  times sake

This  is a  promise I  shan’t   break !

 

 

 

 

QUIET PEACE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/15

The air  is damp and  holds a chill

The wind  is wet  and oh so still

There is no sound  that can be heard

No peep  or chirp  from any bird.

Tis like  a prelude  to a storm

Wherein  the clouds have  yet to form

Help me,  oh Lord,  to find  release

To spend  my days in  quiet peace !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOVE THE CLOUD ( 2019 ) 2019/09/14

From my  perch here  above the crowd

I  see the sun  behind the cloud

The light  it filters  through the blind

To  focus on my troubled  mind

And  brings to me  a message of

The  peace of  God’s  eternal love.

I feel  the warmth of love and care

It  fills my heart,  it’s everywhere

Oh  what a joy  each day does bring

True love that from our God  does spring !
